New filings that showed up today in the Eurasian Economic Commission database indicate that Apple is planning numerous fall product releases. The new listings are for new Apple Watch and Mac models.
Six new Apple Watch identifiers – A2473, A2474, A2475, A2476, A2477, and A2478 – are likely new Apple Watch Series 7 models. The new Apple Watch Series 7 models are rumored to feature the first significant redesign that the Apple Watch has seen in several years. Thinner bezels and updated display technology, along with a smaller S7 chip, and possibly new health capabilities.
The ECC database lists A2442 and A2485 as new Macs, and could possibly be the expected new 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pros that are rumored to be launching before the end of the year.
The new MacBook Pros are expected to be powered by an updated Apple Silicon chip and feature an overhauled design that replaces the Touch Bar with a row of traditional function keys, an SD card slot, and an HDMI port, as well as Thunderbolt 4 ports. The new MacBooks are also expected to bring back MagSafe charging and possibly boast mini-LED displays.
In June several new iPhone model numbers turned up in the Eurasian Economic Commission database, including A2628, A2630, A2634, A2635, A2640, A2643, and A2645, all of which likely correspond to new iPhone 13 devices.
Apple is required to publish all products featuring encryption and/or cryptographic tools with the Eurasian Economic Commission, leading to these filings that are popping up ahead of the fall product launches.
